the early 24 V is not considered too optimal either, (fuel pump failures...dieseltruckresource.com) tho I do have a 'cab and chassis' 1st gen (they were considerably tougher, tho not as powerful, plenty of 'free power mods') I have a longer WB, + bigger brakes + stouter springs (not too spectacular...) It (93) is built whimpier than my '78 forest service version w/ 4:56 4x4 running gear (goes ~ 35mph comfortably) I have an electric dump on it (not optimal, but I got my $500 worth from this truck, as I pulled my Dozer quite a few times, and delivered many loads of 3' landscape boulders. A 1T dump is pretty limited, best for firewood, chips and bark. (low density), but handy, none the less
